Here at BANPAS we love helping photographers to be more efficient, which in turn makes them more profitable.
One way of being more efficient, which is often overlooked, is in planning your sessions.
Of course most newborn and baby photographers work to the baby’s schedule and we all know that baby often doesn’t get the memo detailing your plans, but planning your perfect session and how to react when things don’t go to plan can have huge benefits for you and your clients:
- Clients can see that you have invested time in them prior to the session even starting – this shows you care about your work, your clients and the outcome.
- You can eliminate your pre session nerves by planning. Knowing which order you are posing baby in means you don’t have to worry about thinking on your feet the whole time.
- You won’t miss out poses or images that you want to try and include.
- You can plan for when things don’t go to plan, leaving you calm and in control even when baby doesn’t fancy snoozing at any point during the session!
To assist you in planning, we have interviewed BANPAS member Lee Fletcher of lee Fletcher Photography in Falkirk.
In this interview, Lee shares some fantastic tips on planning your sessions to ensure success. (hear the interview below)
